Attain Ability, Flexibility, And the Joy of Movement
body evolve: An Effective Approach to Bodily Healing
Body Evolve is described as a structural integration technique that originated in China. Body Evolve looks at the body as a whole and focuses on the interconnections of the body-aligning, tendons, ligaments, muscles and the bones by gently adjusting their position while the lymphatic system drains and neurological re-education occurs. Our Modality is a form of manual therapy that is ideal for addressing a wide variety of soft tissue injuries, both acute and chronic. It is both very comfortable to receive and very effective for pain relief and restoration of function.
We feel our name – the Sanskrit word Sadhana –
best describes our inspiration and our work.
Sadhana (SOD-duh-na) means
leading straight to a goal, guiding well, furthering; effective, efficient, productive of; accomplishment, performance; subduing a disease, healing, cure; establishment of a truth; any means of effecting or accomplishing,… making preparation (of food, medicine, etc.); substance, ingredient, medicine; good works, penance; worship. . . experienced, sincere, professional, skilled, committed guidance, for optimal wellness.

KIMBERLY KLEIN’S EXPERIENCE
Kimberly Klein has 20 years in teaching a flow yoga style designed to individual health needs. Kimberly taught dance for 20 years. Kimberly Klein worked with a program I Can Dance for students with disabilities. Kimberly Klein has been practicing Sadhana Therapy since she was 13 years old.
Kimberly began training when she was 13 years old. She studied Movement, Ballet and Yoga from April Vihilidahl. Kimberly studied Sadhana Therapy, Chi Qong, Analyzing Movement, Accessing Anatomy, Philosophy and Inner Child from John Vihilidahl. She became an apprentice under John and April Vihilidahl till she was 24 years old. Kimberly became fascinated with how the body and mind works, how trauma affects the body and how movement patterns can be reeducated even with physical issues that occur in development in the womb.
Once in Colorado, Kimberly continued on and specialized in Brain Injury becoming a TBI (traumatic brain injury) representative for the state of Colorado from 2007 – 2012. Then eventually working with Dr. Magarelli at the AIHAC (allopathic integrative healing arts center) from 2008 – 2011. Kimberly taught continuing education classes for AMTA and became a continuing educational instructor for the NCBTMB.
Kimberly Klein has the gift to feel and know what each person needs next. In a quiet but powerful way her encouragement is unfailing. My clients consistently refer to her precision, her unwavering dedication and her professionalism. Perhaps most impressive to is that she remains a humble student of the discipline she is so skilled at teaching.
Kimberly now lives on Kauai in Hawaii.

Sadhana Therapy was named to describe a unique form of bodywork that incorporates aspects of massage, physical therapy, yoga movements, passive resistance techniques, and intuitive dialogue. Kimberly Klein, LMT is nationally recognized for creating awareness of a form of bodywork that was taught and handed down by a Shaolin family. She trained in their form of therapy from age 10, and now at 33 she is training others in its system.
I am a board certified Reproductive Endocrinologist and Infertility specialist with a keen interest in alternative medicine’s synergy with traditional western medicine therapies. I, and my collaborator, Diane K. Cridennda, L.Ac. FABORM have published extensively in the field of acupuncture and In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) techniques (3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10).
Currently, Cambridge Medical Press has published its newest textbook on Reproductive Medicine and it included the world’s first chapter on Traditional Chinese Medicine in a western textbook that we wrote. I also have a Ph.D. in Nutritional Biochemistry and Animal Physiology having the dubious distinction of being a world authority on shrimp reproduction. The purpose of this historic review is to provide a basis for the information in this article.
I met Kimberly about two years ago. I had just opened the Allopathic Institute and Healing Arts Center (AIHAC) in Colorado Springs, Colorado and she interviewed for a position. Each candidate was required to provide their healing arts to the AIHAC members and Kimberly was chosen to provide me an example of Sadhana.
My history is that I am 56 years old, played piano since age 5, studied martial arts, and practiced RE&I medicine for over 14 years. The art of IVF required vaginal ultrasounds, vaginal puncture to retrieve eggs, surgery, and very finely-tuned finger control for embryo transfer.
Needless to say, with so many years of piano, martial arts and the care of many, many IVF patients, injuries to wrists, elbows, shoulder, neck, and back plague our field. I had twice before considered surgery for chronic arm and shoulder pain. I had tried Acupuncture, Active Release Techniques™ (ART), stretching and exercise and although they helped, the problem continued to affect me.
This is where the story gets interesting.
Kimberly’s form of bodywork falls outside most of our experiences. The massage table is familiar, the oils are the same, you do undress to your comfort level, but then the therapy begins.
Usually you start on your stomach and she begins “tapping” and gross movements of arms, shoulder and back. It is a physical effort, tapping with fingers, elbows, and arms. Gentle (almost ridiculously soft) movements are used to tap bones, ligaments, and joints into alignment.
Then large movements, like stretches or passive yoga, are performed with you as an observer. She will talk and ask about each movement’s impact on a symptom you have described as a problem and she will offer additional questions for symptoms you may not have expressed and usually you are surprised that she “knew” this or that was tight, or was in pain, or seemed to bother you.
Simultaneous with your movements, she will discuss Eastern philosophy of cause and effect, past life, nutrition, and social issues that she believes the body is expressing in pain or stiffness or discomfort.
My arm and shoulder pain had been treated by ART for many years, and although the treatments helped, it usually required continuous visits to maintain. With Sadhana Therapy, treatments could help for months at a time. Kimberly usually demonstrated both complex and simple stretches that you could do between sessions. The more you did your “homework,” the less you need additional bodywork. [Of course, this is a very bad model for a business, but Kimberly seems to be doing very well with patients and return patients!]
So why write this article? I guess for me, I am fascinated by the help that Sadhana Therapy has done for me. I am intrigued and a little confused on the mechanisms of action, but feel that Kimberly is on to something which will help many of my patients, family and friends. Any new therapy needs objective evaluation and quantification of its efficacy.
I believe that Sadhana Therapy may well prove to be evolutionary rather than revolutionary to the field of Therapeutic Bodywork.

Open Letter to Those Considering Sadhana Therapy
I am writing as a massage therapist, educator, organizational director of education, and as a client, about Kimberly Klein and her skills as a Sadhana therapist.
I have been a massage therapist since 1985, specializing in chronic pain and trauma recovery. I have taught classes throughout the country, as well as having developed, administrated, and taught at a medical massage school in Fort Collins, CO. As a workshop promoter for over 20 years, I have seen most massage modalities and have had the privilege to study with and promote masters in the field of therapeutic massage and bodywork. It is from this perspective that I have come to learn about Ms. Wuest’s work and to experience its effects.
I met Ms. Klein at an American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) meeting in March of 2008, in Boulder, Colorado. She spoke of her work with traumatic brain injury (TBI) survivors, particularly in regard to a beloved member of our Colorado chapter (AMTA-CO). I was quite impressed with her presentation, and spoke with her at length about her work.
You see, I am a TBI survivor, with an injury sustained in September of 2005. I have been through many different treatments for my injury, and due to my vast experience in the field of health and healing, can quickly discern the chafe from the wheat, metaphorically speaking.
Her approach, knowledge, empathy, and clarity inspired me; when she offered to give me a treatment, I jumped at the chance. There is little understanding about this condition, and her wisdom excelled.
She worked on me for almost an hour, and the effect of her treatment lasted almost an entire week. The constant bloat in my body, due to the inflammation of such an injury was completely gone for 6 days; my pain decreased, and my attitude improved.
If she lived close to me, I absolutely would continue to see her.
I was so impressed with her skill set and the impact on my body, that I booked her for the AMTA-CO meeting in October 26, 2008, in Manitou Springs, CO.
I believe it is very important for massage therapists to have access to her work and expertise, to improve the lives of TBI and other acute trauma survivors. TBI is proving to be a prevalent and insidious condition, and therapies that can help are in desperate demand.
I am proud and pleased to associate with Ms. Wuest and am delighted to recommend and support her in any way. If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for your time.

A Scientist Experiences the Transforming Effects of Sadhana Therapy
Article by Lewis E. Graham, Ph.D, D.D
Scientist, Shaman, Author
Personal & Professional Background
Lewis E. Graham, Ph.D., D.D. graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a B.S. degree in Psychology. He then earned an M.S. from the University of Georgia, where he also was awarded the Ph.D. degree in Clinical Psychology with a co-major in Psychophysiology due to his interest in the mind-body connection. That was an early point in scientific focus upon an area of emerging research which later would be called psychoneuroimmunology.
After graduation, Dr. Graham pursued a three-year postdoctoral training curriculum as a US Public Health Service Fellow and served as an adjunct faculty member at the Stanford University School of Medicine, Department of Medicine. In 1981 he was granted a completion certificate in Epidemiology, Biostatistics, and Behavioral (Preventive) Medicine. Over the next 20 years, he founded a professional services company that eventually opened offices in four countries. In 1999, the company negotiated the sale of its intellectual property and brought its operations to a close over the next several years. In 2001 Lew Graham was awarded a Doctorate of Divinity degree (D.D.) based on his persistence with a lengthy program of study that began in 1987.
Having been a marathoner and amateur triathlete at Stanford, Dr. Graham competed in the World Championship Triathlon in Nice, France in 1983. But over the years, his athletic injuries took a toll for which he found no effective non-invasive, medication-free solutions. And this is how he became aware of Sadhana Therapy-initially as a grateful client.
Dr. Graham’s in-depth exposure to multiple areas of both leading edge and orthodox research has been valuable. He is applying that unusual background in advising our Sadhana Therapy team as we carry out research that verifies therapeutic effectiveness.
I ran my first marathon in the 1970s while involved with health and preventive medicine research at the Stanford University School of Medicine. I eventually won 1st place in a Stanford triathlon. That triumph qualified me to compete in the World Championship Triathlon in Nice, France in 1983. I finished the grueling French contest, but was left with lingering hip (sacroiliac) knee, and hip issues after nearly 12 hours of heavy exertion. These athletic strains resulted in intermittent pain and related injuries for which I sought solutions. Traditional practitioners offered only medication, appliances (e.g., orthotics) and surgery. So I sought out a wide range of alternative approaches. In part, these included massage, chiropractic, acupuncture, Rolfing, ART (Advanced Release Technique), NCR (Neuro-Cranial Restructuring to re-balance the skull & thereby shift chronic spinal and hip compensations), and daily inversion table therapy.
And what was the result? Nothing worked … and my problems persisted!
Finally, in returning from a European book tour, I found myself nearly unable to walk despite orthotics and physically pained more than ever. It was at that time in early 2009 that I propitiously discovered Sadhana Therapy. My initial response was that the unique approach sounded ‘too good to be true’. After all, I had been uniformly disappointed in trying almost everything non-invasive while declining medications due to concerns about toxicity and side-effects from engineered chemicals.
So I was initially pessimistic about Sadhana Therapy. After all, no one had heard of these techniques and there was only one full-time US practitioner. The agony got the better of me, though, and I set aside enough skepticism to try out one Sadhana session.
And what was the result? That single session was life-changing!
Long-standing physical problems, including foot, leg and hip pain that I’d had for years simply vanished-for good. Kimberly Klein also showed me some personalized pain-free stretches to maintain and improve my newly aligned, released structure. And nagging, life-disrupting problems have never returned to this day.
I was so amazed by this outcome that I traveled to California to meet Ms. Klein’s teacher and learn more about her training as well as the origins of the astonishing Chinese healing techniques. I also interviewed clients Ms. Klein had assisted, including serious head injury cases, and volunteered to assist the Sadhana team in designing research and collecting efficacy data.
It soon became my aim to see the validation of these methods published in medical journals and textbooks as the approach and related techniques are learned by a growing number of certified practitioners.
The world will be a better place when this vision becomes reality.
